The statistics include the number of customers who have physically visited the locations of Vantaa City Library by location and month since January 2007. The visitor data is collected using the counters on the alarm gates. In the smallest libraries, where there are no alarm gates, a manual visitor count is performed once a month, based on which the total number of visitors for the whole month is estimated.

Attributes:

  • toimipaikka / location
  • osasto / department
  • vuosi / year
  • kuukausi / month
  • kävijöitä / visitors
  • huomautus / note
